After the problems with Nicole infusion pump this weekend I am grateful that the speciality pharmacy and the insurance approved within hours for her to have a third pump so she will never be without a backup if one breaks/malfunctions.
Bruce McIntyre (@brucemc) joined Denise for Care Break on June 9th to talk about serendipity. It was a great show as always. I think sometimes we forget to look for those moments while we are in the trenches of […]
Denise was joined by Jan, who cares for her mom, on May 30th. Jan talked about getting hospice for her mom after it had been denied in February. It was a great show. I can totally relate to the Florida summers […]
@janshriver, just listened your PodCast
And not just because it was like listening to my own story especially your account of Hospice and your encouragement to not wait too late. I waited late for my Dad.

Blessings and prayers for you and your family.

This is beyond my comfort zone!!!
Denise was joined by Linda, who cared for her mom until her death and now cares for her dad from a distance. She talked about resentment. I loved Linda (@goinhome) the first time she was on and I loved her just as […]
Even though I had to spend almost an hour and a half throughout the day on the phone with Nicole’s specialty pharmacy I hopefully got a lot of issues (current and future) resolved.
